St. Modwen Homes visited a Stoke-on-Trent primary school to teach pupils about staying safe on building sites and careers in the housebuilding industry.
Around 200 children aged between five and 11 at Heron Cross Primary School were given a lesson about the dangers and hazards which can be found on a construction site as well as the different roles people play to create a successful development.
The lesson was led by Senior Site Manager Carl Bradshaw, who is leading the team at Trentham Manor, where award-winning housebuilder St. Modwen Homes is building a range of new houses off Stanley Matthews Way. He was joined by Considerate Constructors’ Mascot, Honor Goodsite, who helped showcase the sorts of equipment people wear on site with a group of volunteers dressed up in hard hats, hi vis vests and protective gloves.
Mrs Shenton, headteacher at Heron Cross Primary School, said: “The children really enjoyed the visit from St. Modwen Homes and it was a fun and interactive way of delivering some important messages.
